Retired - Interchangeable Gunmetal Colorburst Earrings

PROJECT E109
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Fun, fun, fun! Make these earrings in a variety of colors to match any outfit. This design features colorful Soft Flex beading wire, or you can use silver color beading wire for a more neutral look.
Instructions
Cut four pieces (two per earring) of beading wire at about four inches each. Thread the ends of two pieces of wire though a jump ring, gather the ends, thread all four pieces of wire through a crimp tube and crimp down.Trim each piece of wire to a different length, but make sure that you make both earrings identical.To each piece of wire thread the corresponding color bead. For example: thread the fuchsia jade beads onto the hot pink wire. We used about three or four beads per strand of wire.To the end of each wire thread a stardust sparkle bead and a crimp bead. Crimp the bead and trim off excess wire.Now just thread the earring hook through the jump ring. Changing colors is as easy as removing one jump ring and replacing it with another.The Soft Flex Trios line also comes in various other colors. Why not try pairing your favorite blue colored beads with the "Tranquility" set, or some cool green beads with "Renewal".
